Located in the heart of a 180 acre living rainforest 4,000 metres above sea level in southern India, Vivanta by Taj – Madikeri is a “green at heart” sanctuary offering luxury Ayurveda Panchakarma and Yoga retreats.
Vivanta by Taj – Madikeri’s approach to healing is rooted in the indigenous healing traditions of India with all-inclusive packages including food, Yoga, chanting and meditation, Ayurveda treatments, medicines and spiritual discourses.
For the ideal retreat, Vivanta by Taj’s four and seven-night Yoga and Panchakarma packages include everything from a Satvik lunch and Yoga kit to Ayurveda treatments (like Udvartana, Abhyanga and Mukhalepa), and a soak in a traditional wood-fired Gudda bath.
With views out across the rainforest canopy as far as the eye can see and a design flair that exudes barefoot luxury, Vivanta by Taj – Madikeri is the perfect place to lose yourself to find yourself.
From this secluded luxury retreat, immerse in an authentic southern Indian experience with everything from Ayurvedic treatments, to cooking classes in traditional local cuisine and the signature Jiva Grande Spa experience – the Gudda Bath – that draws from the local ethos of Coorg and is still found in traditional households of the region.
With Vivanta by Taj’s unique ‘motif’ experiences you can also unlock the secrets of the rainforest with a naturalist insider, delve into clay therapy at the resort’s own Pottery studio, and ruminate in the Buddha garden.
